    To kick off Round 7 of the NRC, the Greater Sydney Rams host Queensland Country, with the race towards finals gathering momentum. Join The Roar for a game preview and live score updates from 1pm (AEDT).

    Both clubs are coming from solid performances, but only Queensland Country can boast having won – narrowly overcoming NSW Country – the Rams being overpowered 57-31 by the high-flying Drua.

    The Sydneysiders threw everything at the Fijians last week, and the game was in the balance until the 50th minute, but they were unable to hold out any longer, as the Drua ran in five tries in the last half hour. The Rams now sit seventh on the ladder, facing a tough task to qualify for the finals.

    Hugh Roach was impressive in the loss, the big hooker playing 71 minutes and really testing the powerful opposition pack. Along with a try in the first half, Roach ran 41 metres with the ball in hand, and made four offloads and nine tackles.

    Queensland are the in-form team of the NRC, having only lost one game this season. They are third on the ladder but have already had their bye, unlike the Drua and Vikings, who are in front. Coach Brad Thorn obviously has the knack for coaching, as his team has gone from strength to strength this season.

    However, the Queenslanders need to sort out their game management, having almost blown a 31-point lead to NSW Country.

    Izaia Perese continued his outstanding form last weekend, scoring another try, while running for a total of 100 metres and beating six defenders.

    Prediction
    Country are on fire, their forwards constantly providing a stable platform for their exciting backline, meaning the Rams will have to endure another tough match-up.

    Queensland to win comfortably 45-14
